EP Coding is a mobile app for Apple or Android devices that can be used to select appropriate CPT® codes and ICD-10 codes for cardiac electrophysiology (EP) procedures. The coding of these procedures is complex and changes each year. Physicians often need to enter these codes themselves directly into Electronic Health Record (EHR) programs and are often at a loss as to which codes to enter (I write from personal experience). For a full discussion of the rationale of the app and the rationale for using a subset of copyrighted CPT® codes in the app, see this post.
EP Coding is intended to help United States EP physicians enter the correct codes in an EHR system. It is not intended for professional coders nor is it a substitute for the AMA official CPT® documentation.
